This chapter challenges some of the underlying themes, concepts, and assumptions of the community-cohesion agenda. The discussion describes the dynamism and diversity within local neighbourhoods that is not captured in policy interventions or discourse. It illustrates how community cohesion is created by the government in a process that rules out some important dimensions of cohesion from official scrutiny and debate.

Keywords:   community-cohesion agenda, dynamism, diversity, local neighbourhoods, policy interventions, policy discourse, community cohesion, cohesion
